Arsenal to Win

The first leg between Arsenal and Sporting Cristal was very exciting and it showed that we can expect a close duel in the rematch as well. So, it’s not easy to offer a prediction on this game, but we think that Arsenal could snatch a win. They’ve at least scored a goal in the first match and while they are not in good form like the guests who are on a five-game winning streak, they are playing at home and have a quality team.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Even though neither of these teams averaged more than 2.5 total goals in group stages of continental football, we expect to see at least three goals in this game, just like we did in the first leg. After all, Arsenal has to win this game to get into the quarter-finals, so they will probably enter the game with an offensive mindset, which should also leave more room for Sporting on counter attacks.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Similar to our previous prediction, we are also focusing on the context of the second leg instead of on the previous results by these teams in Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana. With that in mind, we expect both teams to score in this match, which is something that we’ve already witnessed in the first leg.

Arsenal vs Sporting Cristal preview: An exciting rematch awaits us

After the 2-1 in the first leg, Sporting Cristal will try to defend their advantage against Arsenal in the second leg to secure a spot in the Copa Sudamericana quarter-finals. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Arsenal

The team from the Sarandi district in Avellaneda comes into the second leg of the Top 16 phase of Copa Sudamericana against Sporting Cristal with a 2-1 deficit, so they’ll have to win the second leg if they want to play in the quarter-finals. The team was on a break for more than a month before the first leg, but they’ve also played the first round of the Argentine league over the weekend and drew with San Lorenzo.

Sporting Cristal

After winning the Peruvian Apertura, Sporting Cristal started the Clausura with a win this weekend. With the win against Arsenal in their first match, the team is now on a five-game winning streak in all competitions and they can enter the rematch with a lot of optimism and hope of reaching the quarter-finals of Copa Sudamericana.
